Proper Irish (Jaded Lily #1)Proper Irish by Zeia Jameson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Proper Irish is the fantastic first book in the Jaded Lily series by Zeia Jameson. I had not previously read any of this authors work and I have to hand it to her, I absolutely loved this book. If this first book in the series is anything to go by then this series is going to be right up there among my favourites.
The story centres around Stella Rosencourt who as an events planner is planning a St Patrick’s Day event for the local mayor who originates from Ireland. Unfortunately the mayor’s wife is a complete bitch and making Stella’s life hell. Add to that the mayor’s son Padraig has taken an immediate dislike to Stella. When Stella asks for Padraig’s help to make the event as authentically Irish as possible sparks are soon flying between the 2. As much as they dislike each other, they can’t deny the attraction.
I loved this story and devoured it all in one sitting. Padraig and Stella are amazing characters who are very well written. Padraig comes across as very abrupt and unpleasant to begin with but we soon get to see the much softer, charitable side of him. The interactions between the 2 can be quite entertaining to say the least. The secondary characters add a lot to the story. In particular I loved Padraig’s mum Moira. We are also introduced to Stella’s best friend Kerry and Padraig’s friend Luca who runs the tattoo shop, Jaded Lily, who seem to have hit it off too.
I already have the next book Proper Ink, which is Luca and Kerry’s story on my kindle and I can’t wait to dive in. If it’s anything like this book then I’m sure I’ll be loving that one too.
